Let's face it, this movie was a low-budget horror film with bad special effects. But, it does have one saving grace; Peter Cushing is wonderful as a police detective trying to follow the trail of a blood-feasting (totally ludicrous and campy) giant moth woman.
The picture quality of the DVD is fairly good, and the sound is fine. It is presented in letterbox, which is much more pleasing to view then the Pan-and-Scan vhs copy that I first saw this picture on. The setting is Victorian, and having a British cast, the performances are believable and elegant (even if swallowing the idea of a giant Deaths-Head moth makes you gag a little). If your after a film of the quality of "Horror of Dracula", or "Curse of Frankenstein", then don't bother. But if your a die-hard Peter Cushing fan, like I am, you'll probably enjoy this movie, as I do. There's not much suspense, but there is plenty of dry British humor, and some fine performances. Just don't expect to be dazzled by the special effects. Think of it as Sherlock Holms meets Gozilla, and you'll do fine.

For anyone who owns the 2000 Image DVD of this movie, or remembers it from TV viewings back in the day, I just wanted to mention that the remastered Redemption Blu-ray is a tremendous improvement over the Image edition. Merely to say that the sharpness/detail, brightness/contrast, color saturation, and color balance are vastly improved would be an understatement. I knew when watching the Image DVD (which I only picked up a year or two ago, damn!) that the quality of the transfer wasn't very good, but I had no idea this movie could ever look this terrific. Besides being in 1.66:1 anamorphic widescreen (in contrast to the letterboxed Image DVD), it's sharp as a tack, much brighter, with excellent contrast and black levels and virtually no speckling or scratches, and reveals far more detail, especially in the darker scenes where the Image transfer just turns to muck.

And the color!! Deeply saturated and vivid, with natural fleshtones and a gorgeous palette of reds, greens, lavenders, and yellows that pop off the screen. It seriously looks like it could have been shot just a few years ago. Not exactly reference quality, but damn near. And if you haven't upgraded to Blu-ray yet, I'm sure the Redemption DVD will still put the Image disc to shame. Cueing up and comparing the two directly made me want to just throw the Image DVD in the trash (though I'll probably give it to someone instead). It's a murky, blurry, speckly, nearly monochromatic mess compared to the Redemption remaster.

And to top off the fabulous transfer, the movie is the uncut British version, running seven minutes and change longer than the Image disc (which was apparently edited for time, not naughty bits or anything like that, sorry) even though they both have the British title and credits at the beginning.

"The Blood Beast Terror", is a very enjoyable and well constructed little horror tale which suffers because of the weakness in the appearance of the monster of the title which is a giant Death's Head moth that takes human form. The lack of imagination used in its construction detracts from what is otherwise a very atmospheric and beautifully filmed story which may not certainly be the most frightening tale ever filmed but still has alot to commend it. Peter Cushing one of England's foremost horror movie performers lends his usual dignified presence to the proceedings here and helps lift this 1967 Tigon productions feature at times almost up to the same level as his great accomplishments with the famed Hammer Studios horror efforts.
Despite this films quite sensational title, the storyline once you get past the idea of the Giant Moth Creature, is actually an evenly paced mystery drama that takes its time to reveal all the secrets of what is occuring. Along the way we are treated to a very handsomely constructed film set in Victorian times, the usual favourite time period for these British Horror efforts. Peter Cushing plays Inspector Quennell who is investigating a series of ghastly murders where the victims are found drained of their blood and savagely marked with horrific wounds that seem to have been inflicted by some strange undefinable animal. Finding at the site of the latest murder some strange scaley scraps off some type of insect or reptile Inspector Quennell begins to have his suspicions in particular of expert entomologist Dr. Mallinger (Robert Flemyng) who seems to be quite evasive when questioned about possible causes of death for the victims. Unbeknown to the Inspector Dr.

Here we have a good old fashioned Horror movie the likes of which proliferated throughout the Forties and Fifties and because of its mixture of humor and bloodletting, it works marvelously. Director Vernon Sewell's 'THE BLOOD BEAST TERROR' aka 'THE VAMPIRE BEAST CRAVES BLOOD'-1967 resembles its distant British cousins; Director Sydney J. Furie's 'THE SNAKE WOMAN'- 1960 and Director John Gilling's 'THE REPTILE' -1965 with the daughters of prominent doctors having curses placed on them causing them to transform into snakes but here we have our doctor creating his daughter from a moth/human hybrid with the inevitable disastrous results (we must not forget another distant cousin in Director Roger Corman's 'THE WASP WOMAN'-1957 but the transformation results from bee hormones injected into cold cream ). The doctor role was to be played by Basil Rathbone but he succumbed to a heart attack two weeks before shooting started. Producer Tony Tenser had distributed Director Riccardo Freda's brilliant hommage to gothic horror, necrophilia and actress Barbara Steele 'L'ORRIBILE SEGRETO DEL DR. HICHCOCK' aka 'THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK' -1961 and was able to secure actor Robert Flemyng as our 'mad as a March hare' Dr. Mallinger (but he still is Dr. Hichcock in my book). Our femme fatale is the beautiful Wanda Ventham who plays our deaths head moth in erotic nympho style and steals the film from everyone involved. She would also slightly steal her way through Writer/Director Brian Clemens's underrated vampire western 'CAPTAIN KRONOS VAMPIRE HUNTER'-1971.Read more ›
